It’s once again time to take a look at the way Avatar, which I am watching every week this year, has been affecting my life. And guess what? I have almost nothing to report. Here’s the one time I thought about Avatar this month (outside of viewings, and article writing, of course):

SPIES LIKE US:
There aren’t many reasons to seek out the 1985 Chevy Chase/Dan Aykroyd spy comedy Spies Like Us, but midway through the month, I watched it anyway. And in the opening scene, there is a giant machine smashing its way through a forest.

Despite the snow and the fact that it is obviously a Russian missile truck, it made me immediately thing of these fucking things from Avatar:

Movie assholes love tearing up forests, what can you do?

So, that’s about it for October. If you were wondering if my life was impacted by High Fidelity or Jurassic Park, the movies I watched in 2012, and 2013 respectively, the answer is no. They are fading into the past, and apparently I’m doing a good job of not thinking about Avatar either. And you know what? You’re not going to hear me complaining about that one bit.
